    Can you do a laser cut Fred Dibnah to stand at the top?

    I thought you could have just cut the individual bricks and sent him a large bag of them. :):)

    Another couple of shots of the chimney and when placed against the water tower base, it doesn't look bad as a boiler house or pumping station.

    Keep in mind, no glue has been applied at this stage, its held together by the construction method.

    The parts visible thought the windows are the wall parts that go around the base of the water tower.

    A bit more of the brewery. This is built using my module parts that I’ve stitched together for this project.

    Now, baseboards for your roundy roundy layout so you can watch your crack express trains running around and around :)

    You just need to mount it on a powered "lazy susan" geared to the same speed but opposite direction as the train.:D

    I like that, saves an awful lot of wood work, its small, portable and easily stored :thumbs:
    What diameter is it please?

    Can do any radius, the larger radii will just need more boards.

    I’m thinking if I can persuade some like minded members, about producing a scale7 set for use at club events and shows. Straight boards are easily added and they could be members boards all sharing a common track bus?

    Hang on - don't you need to dial in a bit of superelevation there? :eek:

    Can etch Templot track plans too. Let me know if you need board templates to load into templot.

    I saw a layout years ago that did exactly that. It was quite mesmerising!

    That reminds me of Keith Gloster's "Camelot Halt" featured in the Model Railway Constructor, in March 1986 or thereabouts. I liked it so much, I decided to copy it in S4. Built the boards and laid all the track in the scenic area, but that's as far as it got. It went to the local tip in the end, as at 8ft diameter, it was getting in the way in the spare bedroom. :(

    Thanks Phil
    I'm looking for something in the 4' to 5' diameter range, but no more than four baseboards for ease of storage and setting up, which was why I was trying to work out how big the boards you displayed were.

    It reminds me of Whitchurch Halt by Tim Venton, I've had a couple of schemes drawn out for various scales having been inspired by that. Phil's boards would certainly make one of those schemes easier to achieve.
